How to watch WWDC 2020

Apple will hold a special keynote on Monday, June 22nd at 10am PT/1pm ET and 6pm UK time. This year, due to social distancing and travel restrictions, WWDC won’t be held in person but rather streamed online for everyone to watch. There are multiple ways to watch the event, so wherever you are or whatever device you have, you should be able to stream it.

How to watch online

Visit Apple.com for the live-streamed keynote in any compatible browser – this includes Safari, Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Firefox. You’ll be able to access this using macOS or Windows 10. You’ll need macOS Sierra 10.12 or later to watch through Safari on a Mac.

How to watch on iPhone or iPad

Visit Apple’s website to watch the stream. You’ll need to use Safari and Apple says the video will be best experienced on a device with iOS 10 or later – it will play on older versions. On the Apple Developer app, Apple will hold a stream and you can also download YouTube and watch through Apple’s YouTube channel.

How to watch on Mac

Download the Apple Developer app from the App Store and you’ll be able to view a live-stream of the event. You can also watch the event on the Apple TV app (available on macOS Catalina). Otherwise, watch via web browser, as mentioned above.

How to watch on Apple TV

To watch on an Apple TV, stream the keynote through an iPhone, iPad or Mac by AirPlay. An easier approach will be to download the Apple Events app from the App Store. You’ll need an Apple TV 2 or later.

How to watch on anything else

If you’ve got any other device, you can still watch the event live. Apple will stream the keynote on its YouTube channel, which means you can watch it on any computer, iPhone, iPad or Android device with the app installed or via YouTube.com. If you have a Chromecast or smart television with YouTube on, it’s also possible to stream it on those devices.
